Who is Maya Boyce?
Maya Elan Boyce was born in Los Angeles, California USA, on 28 December 2001 – her zodiac sign is Capricorn, and she holds American nationality. She’s a student and social media star, while she’s probably known best for being the sister of the late American actor Cameron Mica Boyce.
Early life and education
Maya was raised in Los Angeles alongside her brother Cameron, by their Jewish mother Libby Boyce and African-American father Victory Boyce; their paternal grandmother Jo Ann Boyce (nee Allen) was amongst the first 12 people to study at an integrated high school, through the law Brown v. Board of Education passed in 1956.
Maya grew up having a rather normal childhood, and while her brother was making a name for himself in the film industry and was in the spotlight, she preferred to stay away from the media’s attention. She studied at a local high school, and was mostly interested in sports during her four years there, as she played both soccer and basketball, and also ran track.
Maya matriculated in 2020, and then enrolled at college, from which she should be graduating in 2024.
Maya’s still a student, and is thus yet to launch her career, but she’s already an Instagram star, and her account is today followed by close to 600,000 people, while she’s uploaded over 120 pictures onto the network, most of which feature her during her everyday life.
Love life and relationships
Maya’s highly secretive when it comes to sharing the details of her love life with her fans, and thus hasn’t spoken of any girls or boys whom she has perhaps dated. This is one of the reasons why there are today rumors circulating the internet, concerning her sexual orientation and current relationship status.
Some of Maya’s fans on the internet have claimed that she’s perhaps lesbian, pointing out the fact that she’s been spotted spending time in public with her female friends, but not with any boy who could perhaps be her boyfriend; a fan has even claimed to have seen Maya and her girlfriend kissing, but Maya hasn’t addressed this, nor has any evidence been provided to support these claims.
There are also those who believe that she’s today perhaps in a relationship with her college sweetheart, and that she simply prefers to keep him away from media, but this remains unconfirmed, as well.
As of June 2022, Maya seems to be unattached, hasn’t married and doesn’t have children.
Hobbies and other interests
Maya’s a philanthropist and has worked with a number of charity organizations, mostly with those that aim to help the homeless; pictures featuring her attending various charity events can be found on her Instagram account.
She’s physically quite active, and has a couple of training sessions at the gym every week, while she’s also following a strict diet; Maya occasionally gives her fans advice on working out and dieting.
Summer is her favorite season, mostly because she enjoys being close to the ocean and sun tanning on the beach.
Maya’s into travelling, and has accompanied her brother to a couple of US states, mostly to keep him company during his red carpet events; it’s believed that she’s yet to travel overseas.
She has her own favorite actors and actresses, some of whom are Rowan Atkinson, Benedict Cumberbatch and Amanda Seyfried, while a couple of her favorite movies include “Mr. Bean’s Holiday”, “Johnny English Reborn”, and “Doctor Strange”.
Age, height and net worth
Maya’s age is 20. She has long brown hair and brown eyes, her height is 5ft 3ins (1.6m) and she weighs around 110lbs (50kgs).
As of June 2022, Maya doesn’t have her own independent net worth, but her brother Cameron’s net worth, at the time of his death, was estimated at more than $5 million.
Who was her brother Cameron?
Cameron was born in Los Angeles, on 28 May 1999 – his zodiac sign was Gemini, and he held American nationality.
